Research for Writing Genre Fiction: Feb. 19 @APL
The Auburn Public Library and the Lewiston Public Library are pleased to present a joint series on self publishing.
Our first workshops will be taught by instructor Melissa Walshe, who published her first book, Autumn’s Daughter, in 2014 and will soon be releasing the sequel, Autumn’s Sister. She is a professional copywriter for shines & jecker laboratories, where she is currently developing the website readmaine.com. She has an Ed.M. in language and literacy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a B.A. in linguistics from the University of Southern Maine.
All sessions will take place on Fridays from 3-4 PM. You do not need to attend all of the sessions. Sessions will alternate between the Auburn Public Library and the Lewiston Public Library.
